    I worked at Duff & Phelps as an intern

    I worked at Duff & Phelps full-time

    Pros

    Smart, hardworking people doing challenging and interesting work with top notch clients
    Comp is generally good, in line with industry

    Cons

    lack of direction sometimes, need to be a self starter, lack of clear guidance on career progression, can be a bit opaque

    Advice to Management

    focus more on long term talent development internally rather than constantly treading water with client engagements - more stability in terms of teams and groups would help too
